Gotham season 3 episode 2 review: Burn The Witch

27 September 2016 1:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Sep 27, 2016

Jim’s moral compass goes a bit wobbly in this rather fun second episode of Gotham season 3...

This review contains spoilers. 

3.2 Burn The Witch 

Holy moral compass malfunction, Batman! In my last review I was hoping that Gotham would start shaking up the stories revolving around Jim Gordon, to make the whole ‘he’s really changed’ thing seem more convincing. Looking at this week’s episode, I needn’t have worried.

Leather jackets and bottles of beer are the easy shorthand for ‘our protagonist is becoming a bit of a dick.’ And this week, that basic idea from the season premiere was fleshed out with some actual plot. It was genuinely shocking to see Jim let Fish Mooney go free at the end of the episode, to manipulate the Gcpd, to encourage Penguin’s mob, and to do nothing when Penguin was later seen celebrating after a fair number of people died. »

Gotham's Ivy Is (Literally) Bigger and Badder Than Ever — Watch Out, Selina!

23 September 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Thanks to an unexpected blast of Marv’s Miracle-Gro touch, Gotham‘s Ivy Pepper will have grown like a weed when next we see her in Monday’s episode (Fox, 8/7c).

And the changes to the street rat aren’t merely physical. “She’s obviously aged physically, but she’s also changed on the inside,” says Maggie Geha, who has taken over the role from Clare Foley. Having blossomed into a young woman, “She definitely has a new confidence to her. The transformation brings out a bit of her manipulative side — and some evil.”

Lucifer Season 2 Premiere Recap: Reunited, and It Feels So... Blood

19 September 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Mum” was the word on everyone’s lips as Fox’s Lucifer launched its second season — and yet the helluva matriarch’s whereabouts spawned quite a guessing game for much of the hour.

Gotham Stars Get You Ready For Season 3's Big Mystery: The Court of Owls

19 September 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Much will have changed when Gotham returns for season three with a six month time jump. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) will be working outside of the Gcpd as a bounty hunter (and drinking himself stupid). Poison Ivy will have somehow aged into a grown woman. And a shadowy faction will reveal themselves to be Gotham City's true controlling class.  As Gotham fans familiar with Batman comic lore had suspected would be the case, The Court of Owls is finally coming into play. So, who are these suspicious-sounding people, exactly? "The Court of Owls, as we discover, really are the puppetmasters for the whole of Gotham," Sean Pertwee (Alfred) told E!

When last we tuned into Fox’s Gotham, Jim Gordon was a man on a mission, having emerged from the myriad dangers of Hugo Strange’s lab with a determination to find and win back the woman he loves, Dr. Leslie Thompkins.

Alas, that romantic mission went sideways, hard, it is revealed in the very first frames of the Season 3 premiere (airing Monday at 8/7c).

First Look at Jk Simmons as Commissioner Gordon in ‘Justice League’ (Photo)

17 September 2016 1:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Director Zack Snyder has revealed a first look at J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon in “Justice League.” In the photo, Simmons stands next to the bat-signal, while he glares at the sky. The director also shared a color image of himself beside the well-known image. In March, it was announced that Simmons was cast in “Justice League,” having taken over the role from Gary Oldman, who played the police commissioner in Christopher Nolan‘s “Dark Knight” trilogy. The character also currently appears on the small screen, with Ben McKenzie as Commissioner Gordon on Fox’s “Gotham.” Also Read: Jk Simmons »

Zack Snyder turns on the Batsignal, reveals Jk Simmons' Commissioner Gordon

17 September 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

J.K. Simmons, previously announced as the new Commissioner Gordon for DC's cinematic universe, gets his big Justice League costume reveal (along with the Batsignal) on the very appropriate Batman Day. Thanks, Zack Snyder! Twitter seems to be the go-to spot for Warner Bros. to debut new superhero stuff. Ben Affleck teased Deathstroke's movie universe debut, we got a look at the new Batmobile, and most recently Batman's Justice League tactical suit. And today, Batman Day, Snyder has chosen to give us our first look at Batman's Bff, Commissioner Gordon, with bonus Batsignal. #JusticeLeague #BatmanDay pic.twitter.com/m1MbiF6HZD — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) September 17, 2016 And what a lovely composed shot it is. I've zoomed in a bit for you to see Simmons clearer. They should probably invest in a more secure door for the roof of police headquarters, no? That door is looking straight out of the '60s Batman series. »

Gotham Season 3 Review

16 September 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

As a lifelong Batman fan, I admit that I was right there with others who felt a bit of skepticism throughout the first season of Gotham. Its reimagining of the origins of Batman and his supporting characters took some generous liberties, to say the least. The comic book community doesn’t often respond well to change, but I believe it to be vital. I mean, how else do you expect a character to endure for nearly eight decades?

Despite any misgivings I may have had, it’s important that I remember I was a devoted follower of Smallville, a series that ran for ten seasons and explored Superman’s formative years. Realizing what that show accomplished and how much potential Gotham has, it’s high time we all accept its reassembling of the parts that make up the Batman mythos and enjoy it »
